Roaring Springs Will NOT Open This Weekend
But we had out bathing suits and towels already packed in the beach bag by the front door!
Everyone say it with me now.."BOO, Mother Nature, BOO!" After a beautiful start of the week where we saw highs close to 90º, sun and sweat coming from places we didn't know we could sweat, the weather's called an audible and ruined the weekend. According to our friends in the Channel 7 First Alert Weather Center, we're looking at 60% chance of showers and high of 69º on Saturday. Sunday's forecast isn't much better.
Taking the weather into account, the folks at Roaring Springs have decided to push back their season opening back until Saturday, May 19, weather permitting.
There is good news though! If you check out Roaring Springs the weekend of the 19th, you'll get to see their new Bearfoot Bay sooner than they planned! They originally planned to open the new children's area on Memorial Day weekend but are ahead of schedule on construction and will open it next weekend. Here's what to expect at Bearfoot Bay!
- Three exciting new slides
- A dozen animal-themed play features like the Aquabear, Aquafox and Aquanoe
- Expanded wading pool
- Six new cabanas
- Shade umbrellas to keep parents cool while they watch the kids play
